last post of 2009

This year is summed up:
1. Pumpaa had a miscarriage
2. I dabbled around with management in Tieto for the first time.
3. Some long and short trips to Finland
4. Learnt professional management courses
5. Learnt professional technical courses.
6. My department in Tieto is probably shutting down. Have to look for a assignment myself.
7. A very memorable trip to helsinki/Stockholm with Pumpaa.
8. Pumpaa has tested positive with twins 2 weeks back.
9. AS every single year ending entry has been, I do not know what to do next and where I am heading. Its horrible when you are a person who knows not where to go.

helsinki and Stockholm in October 09

एक महिना मी आणि तृप्ति हेलसिंकी आणि stockholm मधे राहून आलो. फार सुन्दर होता असा तृप्ति च आहे.

अणि अत तर तिची ड्रॉप ची वेळ अली आहे. माला तर जरा कुचु कुचु होतय. एक दोन फोटोस इथे ताकतों. काल नेहा च मुलाचा बरसा होता. नाव इशान ठेवला आहे.

Move to Ubuntu

Pumpaa and I just bought a new laptop acer 6930. And after 2 days of struggle i got it loaded with Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty jakelope. We are hoping to say bye bye to XP and not feel guilty of using illegal software. :-). I tried once before in 2007 but at that time ubuntu 7.04 failed to load with my earlier acer 5050 with Amd Turion X2. this time around I have the Interl core 2 duo and things are working about 90% stable. and recoverable.

Not so good experience at Lagoona, Lonavala

a week back i was in the Lagoona hotel, Lonavala for a week. The experience was not good at all. The food was junk and the other guests were rowdy and pesky. If they let in these kind of customers, I dont want to go there any more.

Small little work in office

I created a parking auction site today in office. We have now decided to subsidize the bus service by way of making car owners pay for parking. the website looks something like this.
People are crying foul all day long cause no one likes to pay for a service which was free so far. :-)
I have no choice and and have resigned to the fact that I have to live more frugally now.

I am a bear

Without doubt, I am a bear. Meaning I like to slow things down. I hate rapid change and overnight millionaires. I hate people who become rich by way of not working but purely speculating or cheating. Also I respect people who believe in themselves and a wholesome way of life. Unfortunately today India is in no mood to listen to me.
This is the image of current India (EON Kharadi): fast, feverish, willing to sacrifice all values or ethics, street smart and only repecting money. I feel very very uncomfortable in this kind of environment. I like it when people yearn for more peace and mental challenge rather than money and growth at all costs. I dont know if I make sense at all.

The fake IPL player blog

This has been one of the most entertaining things I have seen lately. Someone has dreamt up this idea to impersonate a fake IPL player of the Kolkata team. Its caught on like wildfire.

All about the future

Since when have I come all about the future. There was a time when I was all about the present. And now I have become to well planned that I have no time to actually live today. When I was a child I did not even think about the next minutes simply because I did not know what time means anyways.When i was in college I expanded my horizons and started to think about the next few months when exams were coming up or when big football matches were happening.
After college I being a slow expander did not think about the future more than what I in 1 day in my new job. I did not see any future in that job. In fact I did not have the ability to see future anyways.
I quit 5 jobs; doing the 6th now. Now I have changed. I have woken up to the future. And that is very bad; not the future but the thought of the future. Because the future cannot be predicted still while its very much possible trying to speculate about it. I have woken up to worrying about the future. I always missed it in my life. And now I have it. And now that I have it, I dont want it anymore. I want to get rid of it.
everything is all about the future. Up above is a picture of a brooding girl.

This picture is taken on Helsinki airport, no no its Frankfurt next to a classic Piagio Vespa scooter. Look at my face. I have stopped living in the now. My face is always whats happening next. When will I write my book if I only speculate about when will I write my first book?
